Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think. Until you try, you do not know what you cannot do. You must have long-range goals to keep you from being frustrated by short-range failures. I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something I can do. Have no fear of perfection you will never reach it. Begin to be now what you will be hereafter. In the long run, men hit only what they aim at. Therefore, they had better aim at something high. Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits.

Success or failure depends more upon attitude than upon capacity. Successful people act as though they have accomplished or are enjoying something. Soon it becomes a reality. Act, look, feel successful, conduct yourself accordingly, and you will be amazed at the positive results. Have no fear of perfection you will never reach it. He who has begun his task has half done it. Begin difficult things while they are easy. A thousand-mile journey begins with one step. Normal is not something to aspire to, it is something to get away from. A man may fall many times but he will not be a failure until he says someone pushed him. You cannot pick cherries with your back to the tree.

The first two letters of the word goal spell go. In the long run, men hit only what they aim at. Therefore, they had better aim at something high. Do not be afraid to take big steps. You cannot cross a chasm in two small jumps. In times of stress, be bold and valiant. Nothing of great value in life comes easily.
